NRA Museums senior curator Phil Schreier returns to Curator's Corner with a bang! He's brought two of exhibition shooter Ed McGivern's "Fast and Fancy" revolvers: a Smith & Wesson Double Action .38 Police Target Model and a Colt Single Action Army .38 Special. McGivern was considered to be the best handgun shooter of all time, could perform more than 160 trick shots and earned a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records for the greatest rapid-fire feat. He taught defensive gun use to law enforcement, and authored the book, Fast and Fancy Revolver Shooting. See both firearms on display at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
